Baltimore County Public Schools, Towson, MD.
Beginning with a look at contemporary American materials (both literary and non-literary), this 11th-grade curriculum guide proceeds with a chronological, thematic approach to American literature, focusing on such units as "The First Frontier--Establishment of the American Dream,""The American Dream on Trial,""The Dream and Reality," and "Toward New Freedoms." Each unit, integrating oral and written composition and the study of language with its literary content, suggests scope and time allotments; objectives; ways of adapting materials to various class levels; detailed activities--long range, initiatory, developmental, and synthesizing; and related films. Also providedare a resource guide for teachers and above average students, a listing of highly recommended American films, film rental sources, and two special film units--one for "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," and the other for "The Grapes of Wrath."
